3 Min To Parisian Chic!

For me I always take inspiration by the way French girls do their makeup. On one hand it’s very pulled together, yet on the other it’s kind of thrown on too. While I love wearing makeup, trying new products and fussing over blusher my philosophy is always the minimal approach. So taking inspiration from all those French beauties and applying it with my crazy mornings this is my simple and quick Parisian look.

My dark circles tend to look like burses in contrast to my pale skin. I’m sure there are pale girls out there with the same issue. A great product to use underneath the eye area is the L’Oreal CC Concealer. Not only does this blurr out dark circles, but the roller ball actually helps depuff the eye area too. What really makes this a winner is it also can cover up redness on the face. I simply just dab it on my chin or around my nose and blend it in with my fingers tips. The L’Oreal CC Concealer is a new one to my collection but it’s a great one-stop shop for concealing and undetectable light coverage.

Mascara can make you look more awake, lifts your complexion, brings out your eyes and hides dark circles need I say more? For the time it takes you to put on it most certainly has the biggest impact. To add a thicker lash effect I like to work the brush into my lash line. It gives you that no liner yet defined look that takes only a few seconds to apply.

To channel my inner French girl I choose the obvious choice, a red lipstick.  A red lip in contrast with a nearly naked face always looks super chic. I love sheer reds like the Revlon Balm Stain in Romantic and L’Oreal Color Riche in Cardinal Plume. My favorite among the bunch is the YSL Sheer Candy in Luscious Cherry. This formula is always a go to because it applies with ease, feels great on the lips and smells heavenly. 


  1. I just bought another YSL lipstick a few days ago (I'm terrible I know) but I can't help it, they're so nice! I agree though, bold lips and a bare face es PERFECTO!

    1. There is something in the YSL lipsticks that make them so addictive.
      I swear there must be some nicotine in them, because I am hooked.
      Thanks for the comment and I hope your having a great weekend!

  2. That lipstick color is gorgeous, YSL has amazing lipsticks, and I'm usually a drug store lippy person!

    1. YSL lipsticks are amazing.
      They preform just as beautifully as they look!
